Ol Lentille Conservancy, Kenya
Ol Lentille is a private conservancy of 14,500 acres, lying around seventy-five kilometres north of Mount Kenya. Named after the hill which dominates the area, Ol Lentille sits on the northern escarpment of the Laikipia Plateau.
Wildlife of Ol Lentille
The conservancy is based on Kijabe Group Ranch, and works closely with the local community to protect the animals in the area; kilpspringers can be seen leaping amongst the rocks, hyenas lurk in hope of a good meal, and a flicker high amongst the trees might just be a leopard. There is also the possibility of spotting greater kudu and rare wild dogs in the conservancy.
Animals aside, the scenery on the ranch is stunning. The rolling hills are covered with acacia and wild olive trees, and fig and fever trees are found in the sandy riverbeds. On a clear day views on the ranch are spectacular, and from high points it's often possible to see as far as Mount Kenya, or even the Matthews Mountains and Karisia Hills.
